Interactive TV and free online university courses ? Extend high school

over 10 years ago, we started promoting online university courses. University of Phoenix was the first one to offer free courses then, when they started. Now, MIT has 1800 free courses.

Even though these free courses are not accredited, you can get credit by college boards' 33 CLEP exam results which are accepted by 2/3 of the universities and colleges. LearningCounts.com also helps you prepare a portfolio to prove your knowledge(answers to free course exams), which a faculty expert can give you credits based on prior learning assessment.

So, if you have an older laptop with wifi/b to download fast, you can get a free university education pretty cheap. Knowledge is gained by the course material and familiarity with the terminology used in the course. Then if you have friends to study together, you can help each other to learn fast too.

So, government may have to subsidized online universities to give free education, its very cost effective. And it will create jobs to keep tract of academic achievements. Better education will make qualification for more advanced jobs.

With PCs, you download the MIT free courses and study later offline.

With the new tablets, you study each day your assignment of text book, homework and exams online.

The difference is a USB terabyte hdd to store all the free courses. Both ways need very fast WiFi to download course material.
